Musical Saturday - New recording of complete Conan the Barbarian soundtrack

The weekend can be a time to brush aside mundane distractions and focus on inspiring music. I tend to be very fond of soundtracks, especially symphonic scores. The score for the film Conan the Barbarian by distinguished composer Basil Poledouris has recently been freshly recorded by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra with Nic Raine conducting.

This special 2-cd collection presents the original 100-minute film score, complete with tracks not included in the original soundtrack release. I certainly plan on updating my music collection to include this new complete version of the soundtrack. The score for Conan the Barbarian has inspired me for years. I love to listen to it when I am writing. Its epic and exciting musical landscape drives away the real world and opens the doors to "high adventure." I found the new Conan soundtrack at
